    I worked at Mississippi Lime

    Pros

    Good company, pays well. Very laid back. I learned a lot as a co-op

    Cons

    like many companies, it can be hard to get things done at times because the higher up people make all of the decisions.

        I have been working at Mississippi Lime full-time

        Pros

        - Very competitive pay (above average) - Good amount of vacation - Safety oriented processes - Employee incentives and awards programs - Employee involvement opportunities - In recent years, the company paradigm has been shifting away from the "name, blame, shame, and re-train" system that dominates the industry, and has been moving toward an active learning system. This greatly improves accident response and prevention....

        Cons

        - There is a tendency to fill company positions with people who are educated but NOT experienced, over employees with an impressive amount of experience but no advanced education. This creates a frustrating situation where the new employee has to learn the entire operational process, and afterward, may or may not even be fit for the position that they have filled. A degree (any degree) is seen as more valuable than years...

        Advice to Management

        Keep investing more time and money into the lower level employees. They make your paycheck possible. Do what you can to make the employees feel valued and important. A happy employee is a much better worker than an angry one. Employees are much more likely to work hard and do the job right if they know you appreciate their effort. Just remember, employees are your most valuable resource. Make sure they know that. You...

        I worked at Mississippi Lime full-time for more than 5 years

        Pros

        The hourly workforce was fantastic to work with - dedicated, hard-working, and loyal.

        Cons

        Site management was sub-par. They suffered from the inability to make decisions and whille preaching a collaborative work environment, did not listen to employees. Never dedicated resources to numerous operational excellence initiatives.

        Advice to Management

        They need to give employees the time and resources to improve their work environment and business processes. The employees have the desire and knowledge to get better but doing it in the confines of their regular daily job functions is not working.
